How To Copy Selected Text Automatically In Firefox
By on December 21st, 2009

Earlier this month, we had discussed about an extension for Google Chrome that will help you to automatically copy selected text- Auto Copy. Today, I am going to discuss about the same trick in Firefox.

This is an about:config tweak. To open the preference editor of your browser, direct your cursor to the address bar and type “about:config”. A warning message will appear like this – “This might vide your warranty!”. Ignore the message and enter the editor.

In the filter box, type the following text- “copy”. You will get a preference named clipboard.autocopy. Change the value of that preference from “False” to “True” by double-clicking or right clicking on it. You are done!

I also found a good addon which does the same job. If you think it is risky to edit the preferences you can try this too! – AutoCopy
